The St. Petri-church on the church place in Elbingerode existed since the year 1750/1751. A different church (seemingly in the Schmiedegasse) was first recorded in the year 1228.
In the church of Elbingerode you find old treasures like the Gothic cross on the altar, the Petrus figure outside across the south entrance and also the baptising stand made from wood.

The sports hall in Elbingerode also serves as a multipurpose hall. Events take place here regularly. In February, the big carnival ball is being celebrated, which is very popular.
Next door is the fire service appliance room located.
